Quixotic Paperie 2nd birthday celebrations - Kraftin' Kimmie spotlight!

As part of Quixotic Paperie's 2nd Anniversary celebrations we are throwing the spotlight onto some of the fantastic stamp companies available from Quixotic Paperie. This week it is the wonderful Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps in the spotlight!

We have some lovely samples to show you and would love for you to hop through the list below to see all the fabulous makes.

Kimmie started her stamp company in October 2009 and since then has bought us some wonderful images from some amazing artists: Annie Rodrigue with Moonlight Whispers, Cheryl Alger DesignsSteven Leary Designs, Crissy Armstrong with Crissy's Cuties and Jean Grant with Cindy and Mindy and now the latest addition Emilie's Etchings by Emilie Goulet.

The Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps range is available in the UK/Europe at Quixotic Paperie.  If you're in Canada/US then you can find the stamps at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps direct!


Which is your favourite? Too hard to choose!

As part of the celebrations and the spotlight today, we have a PRIZE GIVEAWAY!  
Pop on over to the Quixotic Inspirations blog to get all the details and enter the draw to win some fantastic Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and more!

And here is my spotlight on Kraftin Kimmie's fairy called Clarabelle...

 

How beautiful is she?!!  I wanted to keep a softer look so went a bit mad on the distressing and kept the colour palette simple.  The sentiment is from the Kraftin Kimmie fairy Tallulahbelle set - what a great sentiment!  I used my Sew Easy Tool with white floss and the zig zag head to create that border and the paper is from the My Minds Eye Lime Twist Happy Go Lucky paper pad (only a few pages of this left, boo!!) 

Wanna see some more gorgeous inspiration?!  Hop on over to each of the blogs below to see some yummy Kraftin' Kimmie Stamp goodness!

Thanks for joining us and we hope you enjoyed looking at all the lovely Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!


I am entering my card into the Copics Creations distressing challenge and St Luke's Charity challenge come fly with me June challenge.
